ICO file format support

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

How can I edit and convert ICO files (Windows icons) to other formats in the Paint .NET? Or where can I find a suitable plug-un?

Actually I can write it by myself, but it will take time :(.

Thanks in advance!

I re-read FAQ now:

Why can't I load or save icons (.ico files)?

Icons are meant to hold multiple images of various dimensions and color depths. Paint.NET is meant to work with single images composed of multiple layers that are exactly the same dimensions and only with the 32-bit color depth. So Paint.NET would make an awful icon editor. Check out Axialis IconWorkshop, http://www.axialis.com/iconworkshop/ , instead.

Why not to implement an import from ICO files in the given dimensions, 32bpp? It would be very useful to create Windows XP toolbar images from icons.
